Every year, thousands of drivers are arrested for drunk driving and alcohol related traffic offenses on Louisiana roads. Many of them assume they don’t have a defense against the police, so they accept the first bargain the prosecutor lays on the table. That is a serious mistake. If you have been charged with DUI, you need skilled legal defense, not a conviction on your record and an unnecessary punishment.
Crescent City Law offers aggressive, passionate, and personalized representation for drivers charged with a DUI, DWI, and other traffic offenses throughout Southeastern Louisiana. I represent clients who have been charged with their first, second, third, or fourth DUI. In Louisiana, three or more offense for DUI is a felony charge and carries strict penalties. I am confident with my strategies, bold with my approach, and effective in finding resolutions that will avoid the harshest sentences and jail time.
Every DUI case is actually two cases in one. The criminal charges will be handled separately from the driver’s license suspension. For many people, keeping their driving privileges is just as important as proving their innocence. The license suspension hearing is the first opportunity to attack the evidence against you. I’ve defended hundreds of suspended driver’s licenses in Louisiana. As your lawyer, I will work hard to help you keep your driver’s license or secure a provisional license to allow you to meet family, work, school, and church obligations.
Yes! Every DWI or DUI is worth fighting. When you are charged with drunk driving, there are hidden costs of such as insurance increases or driving classes. If you are convicted for drunk driving 3 or more times, it is possible for the state to seize and sell your vehicle, revoke your driving privileges, and curtail your constitutional rights with a felony conviction. I have experience fighting to protect your rights and the rights of drivers in traffic courts throughout Louisiana.
